Interesting nose that makes me think of chestnuts. Fruit combines red and black plum and cherry with a hint of red apple, plus a bit of wet tobacco and its spice. The set of aromas is dry. In this world of heavyweight reds it’s a pleasure to come across a wine so light in body yet so toothsome. It does have some structure in the form of exceptionally fine, mild tannins that turn a bit tacky later on. And there’s the sort of lazy acidity one would find in a rather flowery red apple. There’s no particular sweetness of fruit here. I reckon it’s pretty much the perfect lunchtime red. A slightly nutty tannic quality accompanies the long finish. The art of light!
